What happens if the 2D chemical diagram created during the deposition process is incorrect?


An automated process is used to generate 2D chemical diagrams during the deposition process and occasionally the diagram produced may be chemically inaccurate or difficult to interpret.

Any issues with the chemistry or the layout of the 2D diagram created for structures that fit the criteria for the CSD will be addressed by our expert scientific editors during the validation process.

In the future we plan to allow depositors to edit and improve chemical diagrams during the deposition process.
